Liberian power outlet

Varying different combinations of voltages and region codes can often be daunting when planning to travel to another country to the first time traveller. If visiting Liberia the following useful instructions show powering the Jabra Solemate Mini using the standard B, A,C, E or F type Liberian 240 volt 50Hz wall outlets. Power sockets differ depending on which region you are in therefore we suggest reading the power supplies page for a full list of countries. If you are visiting Liberia from another country please check your Jabra Solemate Mini can be charged using a 240v supply. If your Jabra Solemate Mini came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure the device is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional transformer to prevent the device from being damaged when charging it.

Ensure you have version 1.14 or greater of the Jabra Solemate Mini firmware, visit the official Jabra Solemate Mini support site [2] to download the latest version. You can switch off the default 'Connected' and other announcements by holding down the Volume down button when turning on the Jabra Solemate Mini until you hear 'Sound prompts off'.

What is the best power adapter for recharging the Jabra Solemate Mini in Liberia?

If travelling to multiple countries then the best travel adapter for Liberia to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [13]. Liberians use five different standards of power outlets (B, A,C, E and F) and using a power charger like this will ensure that you are covered for both types A and C.

Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle from 100 - 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by switching the supplied heads. If your model of Jabra Solemate Mini is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times by using one of these travel chargers along with additional support for certain power hungry devices. This will allow you to charge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring seperate power adapters on your trip. Because you are only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will help keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand luggage while travelling and on hand for charging your Jabra Solemate Mini at the airport or on the plane. Due to their versatility these types of travel adapters can be used at home so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple phones, tablets and e-readers without using up an additional plug socket.

We recommend buying an adaptable travel adapter similar to this online; the multipurpose power charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [13] which has been successfully tested for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
